Free Group Gift/Group is 99L to Join @ West End
There’s a small town in southern England called Bibury. It’s nestled pretty decidedly in the Cotswolds, and is generally the type of place that I’d love to spend the rest of my life in. It’s small, quaint, covered in flowers, and even has a pub. Last summer, it was on my to-do list of places to visit. I went, giddy to see the little row of famous cottages, and ready to bask in the glory of the English countryside. Sadly, a tour bus was trying to make a three point turn on a one way street made for a single horse cart, and the parking spots were all taken. I couldn’t enjoy my little idyll, and I mostly got a drive through with my camera out the window, hoping to catch a photo or two of that lovely little town. I’ll get back there, one day, but for now I’m going to bask in the gardens of Second Life.
Hunt it Out
Alaskametro are hosting a hunt right now that is the thing dreams are made of. There are sweet, flowered dresses, lipsticks, eyeshadows, nail polish collections and even skins. You won’t want to miss out on this awesome hunt! You can take part in two different ways: you can join the group for 50L and then seek out the hidden flowers in and around the shop for free, OR you can buy each flower for 20L if you want to save your group slots. I’m wearing the Garden Party dress (there are three different shades of the dress to hunt for), the Hybrid lipstick and Hybrid eyeshadow (they come with BOM layers and Omega applier) as well as the Vintage China nail appliers that come with Maitreya and Omega options. There are lots of other options on the hunt too for different heads so take a peek at the hunt vendor poster below!

This shop is not only a clothing boutique with high fashion mens and womens clothing, but an art installation all in one.

Happy Friday, Fab Free! By now you have probably figured out that I love free gift cards and free credits. I guess they are my weakness. Well, there is good news I will share with you today that fulfilled my weakness spot this week. I will tell you how to get a free 300 L store credit offer, and a free 500 L gift card. One of these offers expires today, so go ASAP!
Say What? Free 300 L gift credit!
The four stores run by Monshine Allerhand are giving away 300L free credits to all members of their subscriber system. Simply subscribe to their stores for free, and then you will receive the credit gift. The four stores you can claim your credit gift are: Vaxer, Gaall, Sweet Temptations, and Chic and Shoes. You can pick up your free credit at any of these locations, but when you click the subscriber just select which store you would like to spend your credits at. You can only spend the credits at one of the stores, so choose wisely! Examples of products from each store can be seen on Moonshine Allerhand’s flickr page. I selected Vaxer as my store of choice and I purchased the India set, which is really cute. I love the shorts especially. The credit offer expires on August 31st, so you have until the end of the month to collect and spend your credits. This free credit offer is often offered every few months, so once you become a subscriber to the stores you should receive notices of when it will be available again. Have fun with it!
More Gift Cards!
Another store which currently has out a free gift card is QUERT. A 500L gift card is on offer there today, which you get when you join their free group. I love the face tattoos sold by QUERT, such as this Mandala face tattoo for Genus heads. The gift card is available only until the end of today, August 7th, so head over there quick and spend your card!
Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

As we head into the start of a new week I’m all about some self care. I’ve decided to make some time for things like a little yoga and some meditation in my regular routine. For me there’d be no better spot for some restful mental zen than a quiet spot on the beach. It’s a good thing Luas put out this cute yoga mat out as their new group gift just in time for my rekindled dedication to mental clarity.
This new group gift at Luas comes with a built-in bento hold pose, and a texture change hud with a hand-full of color combo choices. The Luas group is 50 linden to join. If you are new to the Luas group (or haven’t been in a while) you can also grab quite a few of the past group gifts, and access the group-only Lucky Letter boards. You can check out one of those cool prizes in Aline’s recent post “Sharpened Pencils.”
I’m also sporting the new women’s Midnight Mania board prize from Carol G. This gorgeous blue toned upper body tattoo is free with your Carol G group tag, just join the mania. The Carol G group is 200 linden to join, and there are tons of male and female free group gifts, and a men’s Midnight Mania board as well.
Appliers & Layers Included: Neck Appliers – Omega, Catwa, Lelutka, Vista / Body Appliers – Omega, Maitrey a, Legacy, Slink, Belleza / BOM Tattoo Layers – 35%, 50%, 75%, 100%
Lastly, you can’t go to the beach without sunglasses. Or at least you shouldn’t if you ask me. lol These cool aviators are a Marketplace dollarbie by NecoT. They come in 3 variations, a cool yellow color, a mirrored black, and this transparent black pair. They are also 100% mesh, copy, and mod so you can customize the color of the lenses and frames yourself if you want to. Needless to say these are well worth the 1 linden.
